1. Warriors capture crown in 2015

The Warriors’ 2014-15 campaign was the season that started a dynasty. Following a disappointing 2013-14 season, Golden State fired coach, Mark Jackson and signed Steve Kerr.

That move immediately paid dividends as Kerr led the Warriors to a 67-win regular season and an NBA Finals appearance.

With the Dubs trailing 2-1 in that championship series, Kerr decided to go small and utilize his 'Death Lineup' against the Cavs.

That tactical switch worked wonders for the Warriors, who won the final three games to capture their first championship since 1975. Curry starred in the 2015 NBA Finals, averaging 26.0 points, 6.3 assists, and 5.2 rebounds in six games.

2. Warriors' dynasty is not over

Many feared the worst for the Warriors when Durant transferred to the Brooklyn Nets in 2019. It did not help matters for Golden State that Klay Thompson and Curry suffered season-ending injuries, causing the Warriors to crash to the bottom of the standings.

Those fears were allayed in the 2021-22 season as the Splash Brothers reminded everyone that the Warriors are a force to be reckoned with when they are both healthy.

The Warriors closed the regular season with the NBA’s best defensive rating and the league’s second-lowest effective field-goal percentage, per Bleacher Report.

They earned a return trip to the Finals, beating Denver, Memphis, and Dallas in the Western Conference Playoffs. The Warriors then showed their experience in the Finals as they defeated the Boston Celtics in six games.

Curry won the NBA Finals MVP for the first time in his career, averaging 31.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game in the championship series.

3. Warriors go back-to-back

The Warriors’ quest to win two consecutive titles was challenging, with the Rockets handing them a tough test in the 2018 Western Conference Finals. They fought off two elimination games against Houston in that series to advance to their fourth consecutive NBA Finals.

The Warriors took full advantage of that escape as they swept past the Cavs to beat them in the Finals for the second straight season. Curry averaged 27.5 points, 6.8 assists, and 6.0 rebounds in the four-game sweep as he won his third NBA championship.

4. Warriors avenge painful Finals defeat

The Golden State Warriors were on a mission in the 2016-17 season following their epic collapse in the 2016 NBA Finals. They squandered a 3-1 lead in that series, losing in seven games to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Warriors signed prized free agent, Durant during the offseason to ensure there would not be a repeat of that disaster. He formed a lethal partnership with the Dubs’ core of Curry, Thompson, and Draymond Green, leading Golden State to a 67-15 record in the regular season.

During the regular season, they led the league in effective field goal and true shooting percentage, assists, blocks, steals, and offensive rating. They continued their dominance in the postseason, waltzing to sweeps of Portland, Utah, and San Antonio in the Western Conference Playoffs.

The Cavs were no match for them this time around in the Finals, with Golden State cruising to a 4-1 series win to give Curry his second title.
